Designed in 2004 by French architect Jean Nouvel, this 38 story skyscraper standing at 144 meters high, called Torre Glories, formerly the Agbar Tower, can be seen from many locations throughout Barcelona. Designed for the water company Agbar, the design was inspired by a geyser with its most remarkable feature of the facade containing over 4000 glass windows. Its LED lighting technology allows the glass to cast over 16 million colors allowing for extraordinary evening light shows. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #landmarks #architectureanddesign #windowdesign #ledlight #agbar #amazingdesign #geyser #skyscrappers #lookingupatbuildings #exploretheworldwithus #barcelonainspira #barcelonadesign #architecture_hunter #travelspain #cityescape #cityexplorer #barcelona_turisme #visitbarcelona #exploretheworldwithus #barcelona_world #barcelonagram #barcelonainspira #cataloniaexperience #igerscatalonia #traveleurope #iamatraveller #glassdesign #architecturephoto #architectureview #lookingup_architecture

Beautiful green shutters in Eixample. Have you ever wondered why so many of the shutters are painted green? In addition to being a stylish color used throughout Europe, the 19th-century formula for green paint was arsenic. It is said that possibly this color's arsenic composition was believed to keep homes insect-free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #apartmentliving #windowdesign #barcelonafacades #colourgreen #homedesigns #19thcentury #eixample #barcelona_turisme #barcelona_world #cityscene #barcelonagram #barcelonnacity #barcelonainspira #barcelonastreets #barcelonallovers #barcelonacultura #barcelonaspain #europeandesign #catalan #architecturedesign #architectcurephoto #architecturelove #barcelonaarchitecture #architecturedetails #travelspain #traveleurope #travelandlearn #funfacts #paintcolors #designhistory

A Gothic Quarter landmark, Bishop's Bridge was built by architect Joan Rubió i Bellver in 1928 in a Neo-Gothic style. This architect hoped to redevelop the historic Gothic Quarter with this new style, but this was the only finished project here as his plans were turned down by city planning authorities. In spite, the architect incorporated a symbolic dagger pierced skull made of stone underneath the bridge. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #architecturalhistory #culturaltravel #travelandlearn #exploretheworldwithus #gothicquarter #prettycity #architectureanddesign #catalan #experiencebarcelona #experiencespain #travelspain #catalanexperience #gothicarchitecture #neogothic #cityexplorer #cityscene #barcelonagram #barcelonaexperience #barcelonainspira #archway #historicplaces #historicpreservation #historicbuilding #historicarchitecture #historiclandmark #travelphotographyoftheday #travelgrams #wanderxwonder #citystreets #lookingupatbuildings

Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar built in pure Catalan Gothic Style is the church of the people, funded by wealthy merchants and built by the local seaside community. The original 14th-century gothic basilica features very sparse ornamentation making the colorful stained glass and statues stand out against the neutral stone background. One of our favorite statues which sits beneath the stained glass window is the Immaculate Conception statue with the Virgin Mary surrounded by a circle of angels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #barcelona #barcelonaart #culturetrip #exploretheworldwithus #visitbarcelona #thebarcelonist #barcelona_cat #inspiredtraveller #barcelona_world #architecture_hunter #architecturelover #iamatraveller #architecturephotos #barcelonainspira #landmarks #bcnlovers #basilica #art_chitecture #catalunya_arquitectura #gothicarchitecture #catalan #santamariadelmar #elborn #religiousart #churchesoftheworld #medievalworld #middleages #statues #sculptures #medievalart

A seemingly unexpected place to find artwork, the Museum of Montserrat showcases over 1,300 pieces of diverse artwork starting from the ancient world to current temporary traveling exhibitions. The majority of the artwork was acquired through personal donations throughout the 20th century. A number of famous artists' works, such as Picasso, Monet, Degas, and Dali can be seen along with a collection of Catalan artists and other unique collections, such as the Japanese Prints. If you have made the trek to Montserrat, it's a must-see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by JP Duretz ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #barcelona #culturetrip #exploretheworldwithus #barcelonista #visitbarcelona #barcelona_world #topbarcelonaphoto #barcelonaexperience #stayandwander #amazingarchitecture #travelphotooftheday #basilica #medievalhistory #medievalchurch #monserrat #monastery #inspiredtraveller #landmarks #europeanhistory #travelbarcelona #travelspain #traveleurope #cataloniaexperience #historicalplaces #museumday #daytrips #museums #europeanart #arttravel #artwork🎨

Seeing this view of Montserrat puts in perspective just how amazing these structures are to have been built in the 11th and 19th century with pilgrims making their trek here since the middle ages and before this, the Romans who visited this area to worship a shrine dedicated to Venus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo by Ian Kelsalli ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #barcelona #culturetrip #exploretheworldwithus #visitbarcelona #barcelona_world #architecture_hunter #thebarcelonist #topbarcelonaphoto #stayandwander #amazingarchitecture #travelphotooftheday #basilica #churchesoftheworld #medievalworld #medievalhistory #gothicarchitecture #facades #medievalchurch #monserrat #monastery #blackmadonna #travelbarcelona #daytrips #mountainlandscape #mountaintopview #europeanhistory #travelspain #pilgrimage #historicalplaces #barcelonaexperience

The Montserrat basilica facade was built in the Plateresque Revival style in 1901 by Francisco de Paula del Villar y Carmona with a sculpture of Christ and his 12 Apostles centered over the entrance by brothers Venanci and Agapit Vallmitjana. This wonderful eclectic Spanish architectural style combines a mix of Gothic and Renaissance characteristics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #barcelona #culturetrip #exploretheworldwithus #visitbarcelona #barcelona_world #architecture_hunter #topbarcelonaphoto #amazingarchitecture #architecturephotos #travelphotooftheday #basilica #churchesoftheworld #historicalbuildings #facades #churches #medievalchurch #monserrat #monastery #blackmadonna #travelbarcelona #landmarks #europeanhistory #travelspain #pilgrimage #historicalplaces #facadesofbuildings #plateresquestyle #sculptureart #spanishcolonialrevival #spanisharchitecture
